Bret Baier Confirms ‘Concerns’ Over Tucker Carlson’s Jan. 6 Documentary

Reuters Twitter

Fox News host Bret Baier confirmed that he shared some “concern” about Tucker Carlson’s documentary on the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

The Hill reports:

“I didn’t get hurt by it. I didn’t get damaged by it. Were you bothered by it? Because that’s the reporting,” Brian Kilmeade, who is a co-host of the “Fox & Friends” morning program, asked Baier on Monday afternoon during an appearance on Kilmeade’s radio show.

“There’s a … Brian, I don’t want to go down this road,” Baier responded. “You know, I mean, there were concerns about it definitely … I think that the news division did what we do, we do when we covered the story.”

Kilmeade was apparently referring to reporting from NPR this week that Baier and Chris Wallace, the anchor of “Fox News Sunday,” shared their objections to Carlson’s “Patriot Purge” documentary series with Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott and the company’s president of news, Jay Wallace. NPR reported that the complaints from Baier and Wallace rose to Lachlan Murdoch, the chairman and CEO of the network’s parent company, Fox Corp.

Ultimately, Carlson’s documentary led to two Fox News contributors to resign from their positions at the network.

“Indeed, the news side of Fox routinely does what it is supposed to do: It reports the truth,” Stephen Hayes and Jonah Goldberg wrote in an announcement of their decision, noting it remains the case that “there are still responsible conservatives providing valuable opinion and analysis” at the network.

The pair called Carlson’s choice to produce the documentary “irresponsible.”

RINO’s Hayes and Goldberg resigned
It reached a point in theri lives where they are faced wiht the reality – “You cannot be a leftist and an American Patriot”
Guess they want to reunite with King George and family and hope Britain will help split the nation…or is it they hope China will help slit the nation?

You want to know what “irresponsible” is?
The media enraging others when they don’t report facts and use only their opinions/views about if a crime has been committed …and then they go even futher away from reporting facts when they attempt to sway public opinion and make innocent people appear to be guilty of a crime EVEN IF they have been found NOT GUILTY…..
THAT is what I call “irresponsible.”

Baier is a liberal and a Trump hater. I watched Tucker’s special and it was quite good. BTW, the only person who was murdered on 1/6 was an unarmed, female Vet. She was murdered by a Capitol police officer who had, previously, left his loaded firearm in a bathroom, unattended.

Who pushed the woman in the stair well and others on top of her?? That is the 2nd
woman that was killed. Terrible way to die being crushed by other people. The person
that was holding her hand as she died said Capital Police pushed them all into the stair
well. Who did that???

They like many others are NEVER Trumpers and anything that makes him look better
they do not like. I am very glad Tucker is doing this, Jan 6 has been presented with so many lies. The FBI set this up just like the kidnapping of the Governor. Yes, there were
Trump supporter there, also BLM, and Antifa with the FBI. We have one video of Roy Ebbs
instigating everyone to enter. The beginning took place before Trump finished his speech.
Ebbs was provoking and stoking every one twenty minutes before the Conservatives arrived. I hope Tucker and Fox can show some of the TRUTH. I wish we knew all the TRUTH. I believe this is another witch hunt. If it hurts Bret’s little feelings, so be it.

The man you are referring to is Ray Epps. Revolver shows video of him on Jan 5, telling multiple groups of people that they must ENTER the Capitol building on Jan 6. It also shows video of him on Jan 6, 20 minutes before Trump finished his speech, outside the first barricade telling people to obey the police, then whispering in the ear of a young man. Minutes later that young man was the first to attack a police officer and breach that first barricade. Epps is also on video from inside the Capitol building in the crowd. He was on the FBI’s most wanted list beginning on Jan 8, in August his name and picture disappeared from that list unlike like the others who had been apprehended and had their pictures marked ‘arrested’. There is no record that any charges have been brought against him, though nearly 700 out of the FBI’s estimate of 800 who were in the building have been arrested and charged.

I think Baier and Wallace, plus Hayes and Goldberg play corporate games. They constantly try to ‘please’ whoever the bosses of the moment are. They know who butters their bread and try to impress them no matter what. They do this while Rome burns. Tucker does not. He goes after truth. He’s not just a talking head loking out for number one.

The MSM including many from FOXNEWS are liberal sycophants playing a part at at quasi-conservative outlet until something better comes along, then they bail and show their true colors at a liberal outpost. Chris Wallace definitely fits this description. I wonder what Baier and Wallace suggested to Murdoch? Have their biggest draw on FOXNEWS fired because their feelings were hurt? Man-up!

We can’t make an informed decision without having truthful information from two points of view. When did a demonstration turn into a riot? Can we have both occurring at the same time? Do we use the same definition of peaceful demonstration as used by the left? will the prosecutors use the same standards for each? Not hardly. we will have many standards applied by prosecutors depending upon your political affiliation. so why should it not apply to the press as well . opinions that favor the Republicans viewpoint are automatically invalid. History is full of failed one party ruled nations.—–Grampa
